    I worked at Ogilvy & Mather full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I freelanced at Ogilvy for nearly 6 years in the creative department. You are pretty much treated like an adult...come and go as you please, as long as the work is done. The atmosphere is very laid back and team-oriented. I'm sure there are some groups within the company that are a bit tougher (depending on client, creative director, etc.) and more structured but honestly, I cannot say enough good things about this place.

    Cons

    The elephant in the room is the location...Eleventh and 46th is not exactly stimulating. And the commute can be tough. But the positives far outweigh the negatives.

    Advice to Management

    While I appreciate the efforts, having an on-site manicurist, language lessons, weekly parties and other perks is wasted money. It's difficult to rationalize the budgets for these frills when people get laid off.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work in different offices around the world if an opportunity arises

    Cons

    Do not work at the corporate head office in New York.. Lacks creativity or the feel of an agency. If you have a family there is no real understanding of the need to work at home at times when your child is sick. In terms of salary increases this is usually saved for the senior managers who expense everything. Only good if you are young and single and no responsibilities and want to work for cents.

    Advice to Management

    People have families and a pay increases once in a while would be nice
